Gas line replacement has caused some road closures on the west side of Lima.
By the end of next week, Dominion Energy said their gas line replacement will be completed. The work was part of a 25-year pipeline replacement project. Dominion attempted to replace steel pipelines with plastic pipes. Operations manager, Jim Coon, said roughly 220 services will have been completed which includes main lines and service into customer's homes. The project will be completed on schedule and on budget. Coon said plastic pipes are the future.
"100 years," said Coon. "They'll be good for a long time. Only thing we have with plastic pipes is we just need people to call 811, call before you dig. I don't care if you're putting in a bush or if you're putting in flowers. Just call us, we'll come out, there's no cost to it. We just don't want people to hit their own gas line or hit gas lines. 811."
Coon said the project was part of a $2.5 billion project for all of Dominion Energy.
